Unhappy FreeBSD authentication problem


Hi all,

Please assist me. I am a Microsoft boy and a complete novice with Linux.
I have just taken over a site that has an existing FreeBSD domain controller mainly for file sharing.

I have a feeling that the previous IT guy has done some devious move that since I restarted the server none of the workstations will log on to the network unless I docs connect the LAN cable, logon with cached credentials and then plug the LAN cable in again.

I noticed that in the etc/master.passwd file, all users and computer accounts are set to /false and not /bash

Would this cause the logon issues?

Also on the server I am getting lists of NSSWITCH , wins, undefined symbol nss_module_register

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

Thank you

Its FreeBSD, Unix/Linux code are all similar to a degree is it not? What are you getting at?
